Before my husband and I moved into our current home, we pulled out all the old carpet had the cement slab polished and sealed. It looks sooo pretty, but I quickly realized that it’s a big house and it’s going to need a lot of beautiful rugs. When I polled y’all about rug brands you love, Ruggable was the #1 response! I’ve since bought 3 Ruggable rugs. Now that I’ve lived with them for a few months, spilled on them, vacuumed them, and washed them, I’m ready to share a Ruggable review: is Ruggable worth it? (Plus I’m sharing a code for 10% off a Ruggable purchase so you can save a bit of money!)

Is Ruggable Worth It?
I’ll explain it all in detail below, but for those of you who want a quick answer for my Ruggable review: yes, 100% these machine washable rugs are worth what you pay. (And I realize they’re a little bit of an investment!) I bought one and lived with it for a while to make sure I loved it. I’ve since bought two more.
What's a "Ruggable" anyway?
Ok, at least 90% of you have heard of these because Ruggable has instagram ads running like crazy right now, but for those of you who live under a rock (KIDDING!), Ruggable is a company that makes beautiful rugs for your home. (And they have outdoor rugs now too! I’m eyeing this one…) They’re made of two parts: a bottom pad, and a top layer that can be taken off and washed in your washing machine.
How does it work?
Honestly, super easy. I’m not a very handy DIY person, and it took me 5 minutes to unbox my rug and roll it out. They have a video on the website, but you’ll basically unroll the pad, and then unroll the cover on top of it. It has a sort of hook & loop fastener feel to it, so it sticks easily and I was quickly able to smooth out the wrinkles.
Do Ruggables Rugs actually fit in the washer?
Yes! Crazy, right? My 8X10 ruggable cover fits into my standard size washer. I was sooo relieved that I wouldn’t have to make extra trips to the laundromat to wash it!
I did a photo shoot on this rug (I was promoting a Tex Mex restaurant – lots of salsa and queso in that shoot!) and there were a couple stains from our enchiladas and fajitas. I spot treated it, popped in the washer, and it was good as new!
How Much Do Ruggable Rugs Cost?
Ruggable rugs cost anywhere from $109 – $629, depending on the size and pattern you pick.
Does Ruggable Have Free Shipping?
Yep, right now Ruggable has free shipping! (I’m not sure if their policy will change, so make sure to check their website for details.) You can also exchange your rug for free. If you want to return it, though, you’ll have to pay $25. This is one of the only cons to Ruggable that I can think of.
One of the main reasons I went with Ruggable is because I have a pet and a baby. Honestly, I’m surprised it took this long for washable rugs to become mainstream, because anyone with kids and pets knows that rugs get disgusting really fast!
Although they’re a little bit pricier than the average rug, Ruggable was a great investment for me. An average rug has a short lifespan in this house (toddler running around and a cat knocking stuff over!), and I can’t ask a rug to last more than a couple years before it’s stained and in need of disposal or donation. But since a Ruggable is washable, I’m planning to get many more years out of it!

Do i need the classic ruggable pad or the cushioned ruggable pad?
You can see the difference between the classic and the cushioned ruggable pad in the photos below. The cushioned one is more expensive, so I personally only bought this one for use in the playroom where I know I’ll be sitting on the ground a lot. We have polished cement floors in our house, and the cushioned rug is great for them! For areas where we’re just walking (like the front entry or kitchen) I saved money by purchasing the classic ruggable pad.
Pros and Cons of Ruggable
Like I mentioned, I’ve bought a few of these rugs now. I know it’s a big purchase and you want as much info as possible before you make the leap! No ruggable review is complete without sharing both the good and the bad. Here’s what I wish I knew before I bought mine:
They wash really well! Obviously one of the biggest perks, because that’s what you’re paying for.
These are the best rugs I’ve found for pets and kids. I want a house that feels easy and live-able, and my Ruggable rugs are helping me achieve that.
Beautiful rugs for both kids and adults. They’re just as gorgeous and vibrant in person as they look on the website! I’m so happy with the rugs I’ve bought. (And now I’m a little bit addicted and keep buying more rugs…)
Ruggable rugs are non-toxic. I’ve (unfortunately) ordered some rugs in the past that give off a horrible factory smell for months. Ruggable rugs aren’t chemically treated, so they don’t give off any harmful fumes.
The smallest size is still pretty big. I’d love to see Ruggable roll out a little mat that I can use in my small hallway bathroom.
The classic ruggable pads are thin. If you’re using this in a playroom or nursery, you’ll probably want to buy the cushioned ruggable pad. (I bought that for our Sunburst playroom rug.) It’s really nice and plush, but it costs a premium.
Returns cost $25. A bit of a bummer, because we’re all used to free shipping and returns these days. So make sure you measure your space and fall in love with the right pattern before you click “order .”
Washing is easy, but also kind of a pain. If you have it in a room with furniture, you’ll need to move sofas and tables off the rug in order to wash. Not a huge deal (I’d prefer this to buying a brand new rug!) but it definitely lengthens the process.
There you have it, friends. I’m just surprised it took this long for adorable washable rugs to become so mainstream… Now that they’re popular, it seems so obvious that a brand like this would exist and thrive!
